Heart of the Matter appeal
What is unfolding before our eyes in Europe is an astonishing human tragedy that threatens to change the face of the continent, and turn thousands of innocent children, women and men into a new generation of slaves.
Heart of the Matter is a short (20 – 25 minute) film that will serve as a companion piece to Not My Life, the universally acclaimed Worldwide Documentaries film about the horrors and ubiquity of global human trafficking. Heart of the Matter has been conceived in response to the current refugee crisis in Europe, where hundreds of thousands of refugees, especially children, are at risk of being trafficked in the months and years ahead.
Worldwide Documentaries feel the urgency to get this new film made is too great to rely solely on the international philanthropic community— helpful though it has been and will be to projects now and over the years; and while they are doing their due diligence in that respect, they have also launched a Heart of the Matter Indiegogo campaign, to help raise pre-production funds to move this project forward, and publicise it as widely as possible.
Please help sound the alarm before these lives are lost. A contribution in any amount can and will make a difference.
